Jesus: King of Glory
-Roy Lessin, Jesus Name Above All Names
Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. -Psalm 24:7-8 NKJV
Think of your life as a city that is surrounded by gates. The gates represent entryways into your heart, mind, emotions, thoughts, will, attitudes, motives, and spirit. Now think of Jesus as a conquering King who wants to enter the city of your life. He doesn't enter to occupy one or two areas of your life, but He comes to conquer the entire city—every low place, every high place, every secret place, every guarded place, and every busy place.
As the King of Glory, Jesus is strong and mighty in battle. However, His entry into your life is not a forced entry. He enters your gates as you throw open the doors. He manifests His strength and might not by knocking your gates down buy by conquering every enemy that has laid siege to your life.
As your King of Glory, He comes to you with the brilliance of conquering love. He comes to free you from every battle the Enemy has waged against you, every lie that seeks to defeat and destroy you, every bondage that has robbed you of your joys, every sin that has darkened your soul, every stubbornness that has blinded your way, every stronghold that has oppressed your mind, every heaviness that has been a weight upon your heart. Lift high your gates, and let the King of Glory come in!
